November Nightfall

Nadir of this momentous year is reached.
Ominous opaque shapes shift in tightly locked rooms;
Valediction of autumn's colour-crackling leaves.
Encroaching shadows approach with soot-soft stealth,
Mysteriously merging, emerging from clouded corners;
Bleak charcoal smudges menacing in murky light.
Endless darkness unravelling all around me;
Rooms in my mind painted every shade of night.
